Porsche’s Tribute to the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans – Video

A memorable return.

The 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans was a very memorable and emotionally-draining race for drivers, teams, and spectators. For Porsche, it marked the return to the front of the class, as it was able to take two checkered flags in the GTE Pro and GTE Am classes.

In GTE Pro, the No. 92 Porsche AG Team Manthey 911 RSR driven by Marc Lieb, Richard Lietz, and Romain Dumas was able to take the checkered flag, while the No. 76 IMSA Performance Matmut 911 RSR driven by Raymond Narac, Christophe Bourret, and Jean-Karl Vernay captured the GTE Am class victory.

The two victories for Porsche were quite impressive but they have their eye on another prize: an overall victory with their upcoming LMP1 racer that is slated to race in the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans.

While the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans was an exciting race, it was overshadowed by the terrible accident in the fourth lap of the race that claimed the life of driver, Allan Simonsen. Porsche, along with manufacturers, racers, spectators, and others will never forget the terrible loss the racing world suffered that day.
